A group of Enterprise Placement Year (EPY) students at the University of Huddersfield are in with the chance to win £25,000 in funding.
Ocean Spark is an independent video game studio set up by four video games design students. They are all third year games design or games programming students from the University of Huddersfield. The EPY students are in the final round of the UK Games Fund’s Tranzfuser funding. They have a great shot at winning a massive £25,000 to help them complete their game “Tetra”.

Prize packages include valuable access to established games companies, one being a guaranteed internship interview with Sumo Digital.
